    6. A narrow but capacious hall tree that does wonders for de-cluttering a small entryway. It has nine hooks and two small shelves for storing any number of bags, scarves, hats, coats, pairs of shoes, or storage baskets!

    7. A rolling cart full of organizing drawers that's ideal storage for any hobbies, crafts, or trade supplies that tend to take up so much space. Great for reducing clutter at your workspace and it has wheels so it's easy to move out of the way when not needed.

    8. A rolling kitchen island perfect as a multi-use piece of furniture when you are tight on storage. It gives you another food prep surface if counter space is at a minimum and the shelf below will keep your cookbooks, appliances, dishes, etc., out of the way until you need them. Plus, its built-in locking caster wheels mean you can store it wherever you fancy.

    9. A stylish ottoman with a hinged top that's just the right size for storing extra pillows and blankets instead of having them take up room on the furniture.

    10. A shoe storage bench because nothing takes up floor space quite like a half-dozen pairs of shoes scattered in front of the door because someone is too lazy to put them in a closet... it's me, I'm someone.

    11. A freestanding cabinet for storing games, tools, important documents, books, you name it. Its tall, narrow design gives it plenty of internal storage without taking up much floor space. Perfect for hiding all of your snacks, too, if your home doesn't have a pantry (looking at you city dwellers).

    12. A plastic storage rack full of bins that's a great way for your kids to learn organizational skills and keep their room clean. The angled bins allow more storage capacity without bumping out from the wall as much so you're actually saving space in two ways.

    13. A coffee table with a lift-top so your living room can double as a work space — or a dinner table, like in my house.

    14. A broom holder because it only takes a couple of rakes or shovels in the corner of your garage to make a big mess. But not anymore! Keep those corners clear and keep your long-handled implements neat and organized. They'll look so good you'll actually WANT to use them for once.

    15. An over-the-door ironing board hanger you can also use to stow your iron and fabric care products. Throw it over the door to the laundry room to hide these bulky items until your monthly bulk laundry day.

    16. A set of low-profile organizers for neatly storing things away in drawers and under the bed. These are especially good if you have limited closet space or a lot of seasonal clothing.

    17. A set of three glass canisters you can stack up to use the vertical space on your countertops or shelves. These are just the right size for storing grains, spices, and other ingredients, and could even be used for crafting supplies, decorative soaps, pet treats, or anything that tickles your fancy. Plus, they're stylish, so you won't feel the need to hide them away in the precious cabinet space.

    18. A two-tier garment rack with three cube drawers so you can hang and store all of your clothes without needing a bulky wardrobe or dresser. This is also perfect for hang drying your delicate clothes when doing laundry.

    19. A six-piece cabinet organizing set so you can make the most of the space above your kitchen counters. No more testing Newton's theory of gravity with the stack of bowls on the top shelf, or reaching all the way to the back of the cupboard for your favorite wine glass. These wire shelves and baskets offer a convenient way to put everything within reach without spilling onto other surfaces. It's amazing how much space appears when you actually... organize your cabinets.

    Open cabinet full of dishes

    20. A corner shelf unit that turns an under-utilized part of a room into an efficient storage space for small decor, photo albums, journals, books, etc. Ideal in smaller rooms where your surface areas are limited.

    21. A four-pack of bed risers to instantly give you more storage room under your mattress. The extra height makes it easier to keep an eye on the monsters under there, too because if Stranger Things taught us anything, it's that you're never truly alone.

    22. A 10-shelf shoe organizer with a narrow profile because when you run out of shelf space for shoes, the only direction to go is UP! Plus its thin design means you'll hardly notice this taking up room in your closet.

    23. A set of stackable refrigerator bins so you can finally organize the mess that is your condiment collection. No more buying a jar of mayo just to lose it in the clutter and find it years later after it's grown... fur. *shudders*

    Fridge storage bins full of produce, drinks, snacks, etc.

    24. A narrow plastic storage shelf on wheels which — at just five inches wide — is perfectly small enough to fit just about anywhere. Great for creating a little more storage in a small kitchen or bathroom without overcrowding things.

    25. A Murphy bed because even if you rarely have guests, it's always convenient to have an extra bed for someone to use. With this, when you're not using it, just stow it away to look like a chest of drawers (note: there is actually only *one* working drawer at the bottom). Plus, it even features a charging port to easily plug in your electronics.

    26. A fold-out desk that provides a working surface and storage shelves when open, and folds away easily to save space when not in use. This baby mounts directly to the wall and is perfectly suited for compact rooms that serve multiple functions, like a living room turned home office.

    27. A low-profile TV wall mount for finally getting rid of that old entertainment center that takes up half of your room. A wall mount gives you a better viewing angle and distance and can also give you extra inches — even feet! — of space in your room.

    28. A standing mirror with a jewelry cabinet inside, so you don't have to keep your necklaces and bracelets in a tangled mess inside an old bowl. Plus, you don't have to go anywhere to check out your bling, just close the door, and voila!

    29. A pair of nesting tables so when they're not in use, the smaller one can be tucked under the larger and kept out of the way. Ideal for when you have company over and need an extra place to set down a glass.

    30. A stainless steel, over-the-sink dish rack perfect for drying and storing plates, bowls, glasses, and silverware if you don't have the counter space for a drying rack. This will instantly help free up your precious space by giving you a convenient place for frequently used dishware and cutlery.

    31. And finally, a ceiling-mounted storage rack for your garage, because those bins full of Christmas decorations are taking up valuable space in the closet and you won't need them for another couple months. Store them up high until it's time to rock around the Christmas tree again.
